 i have a potted palm, i believe it might be similar to a sago Palm and although there is new growth in the centre the outside leaves have mostly turned brown, the soil has not been over watered but is in a very bright position and get lots of sun, can anyone help please?

Eventually the leaves will go brown as the new growth comes, is it likely this is just the old leaves dying back. Do you have a photo you can add? How long since you "trimmed" the outer leaves back?

I had a couple of palms in the ground at an old house, sadly I did lose one to the winter. This went from the middle, the leaves as they grew did look healthy, but a quick tug at one in the middle and they whole heart cam out, it was rotten.
